Armed white men and women storm the NAACP office in Houston, Texas with confederate flags and ”WHITE LIVES MATTER” banners.
A group of armed white men and women stood in front of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) office in Houston, voicing their concerns amid the popularity of the Black Lives Matter movement. They were upset at NAACP for not condemning the BLM movement because they believe BLM is responsible for the unrest in Milwaukee and the fatal shootings of cops in Dallas last month. Police were present, but they only watched and observed the protesters, even though they were with assault rifles.
Ken Reed, the leader of the protest, claimed the turmoil around the country was the fault of the NAACP. “We came out here to protest against the NAACP and their failure in speaking out against the atrocities that organizations like Black Lives Matter and other pro-black organizations have caused the attack and killing of white police officers, the burning down of cities and things of that nature,” Reed claimed. “If they’re going to be a civil rights organization and defend their people, they also need to hold their people accountable.”
He also went on to justify the reason for carrying firearms; saying they are for their safety. “We’re not out here to instigate or start any problems,” Reed told the Chronicle. “Obviously we’re exercising our Second Amendment rights but that’s because we have to defend ourselves. Their organizations and their people are shooting people based on the color of their skin. We’re not. We definitely will defend ourselves, but we’re not out here to start any problems,” he added.
We do not support the actions of Blacks in Milwaukee or the killing of police officers, but it is time for white people to recognize that it is their attitude towards the Black people and the restrictions in the economic, educational and judicial systems that led to the unrest, because Black people cannot stand the oppression anymore. Although BLM is an organization based on the idea of self-defence and peaceful protests while on the contrary, KKK is a hate group that claims they try to defend themselves and prove the importance of their lives. What are they defending themselves from?
